Jason Voorhees DID run before, Also Remake


Some people are a little butthurt about Friday the 13th Remake having Jason Voorhees running. Well so did the originals and after seeing the remake last night, no one should be complaining about him running or lack there of.

I think most people got upset when someone said, "Jason dead sprints." He dead sprints about as much as a big, clumsy, ogre can. His runnings are almost identical to the ones scene in this video. If anything, it seems like there is more running in Part 2 than the remake.

As for the remake itself, I guess it was okay but there was some issues. It didn't seem to flow well together. But I am anxious for the DVD release with the alternate cut which contains more gore, more sex, and supposedly additional storyline that makes it seem like a new movie. Hmm, what could they add? At least this movie wasn't overrun with CGI.

If you want to know more about the remake...SPOILERz!

The worst part about the movie is that it felt scrunched together. They tried to put too much in a 100 minute movie and there isn't enough time. It was 100% a remake...of the first three movies. I like to retitle this "movie" "Friday the 13th: Cliff Notes of Part 1-3". It contains the important parts of each film. In the first movie, all you needed was the last five minutes-check. The second one, the last thirty minutes were decent-check. And the rest is the third movie. So I am not sure if I would call it a movie but just cliff notes of the first three movies in visual format. would you call Spark Notes of Romeo and Juliet the book Romeo and Juliet?.

It didn't seem to create a character and was more so geared towards people who have seen the series. He was humanized and feelings of knowing him were there. There was no mystery of who he was like the originals had created. If it was for them, do you really need to "restart" it? As Cowzilla told me, they should've just done number 12 (13 if you could Freddy vs. Jason in the mix) and have a pre-setup like they had in this film but then done something new. And I agree.

But the true question to my problem with the been there, done that feeling with this Cliff Note is...can you really fault a remake for not being original? It feels like it is pretty much what you've already seen before but with fresher film? It isn't great, it isn't horrible. You just expect a bit more, but hey...there are some great pairS of bewbs in there and some fun parts as well as jump parts that will be sure to get a girl to jump in your arms. And isn't that the point of any scary movie?

Unlikely movie coming out akin to Half Life

For some this may seem like a stretch but this weekend I saw one of the most epic trailers ever. It was attached to Push but you can see it online now and it is definitely worth your time.

This should be seen in the best quality so click to see: 9.

Yeah yeah "oldz, lulz" but for those who don't know, it is a Tim Burton film. I've never been a huge fan of his films but this one I can't wait for. Perhaps it is some of the visual scenes or the ton/atmosphere that gives me a Half Life feeling. Or simply put, it could be that it seems just so amazingly epic and that is what HL was. Of course you have to tolerate the music but it gets the job done.

Probably the best way to sum it up is if Half Life and LittleBigPlanet had a baby. Then those babies grew up a bit and got pissed off cause someone wrecked their world. It is a win win situation!

Also, those look like Striders, huh?   read

Savage Moon, YEAH BABY!


It is finally out if you didn't know and it is every bit as good as I remembered it. A little pew pew here, and some more pew pew there and bugs get BLOWN UP! All this in a nice little package.

Another nice feature, you don't get any of the trophies until the level is finished so you can stay focused on the mission at hand. YES! Don't take me out of video game mode unless you have to!

Good music, good graphics, good fun. This game has all I could want in it for a nice small package of $10. The only thing missing is a naked Dizzy Florez and/or Song 2 playing in the background.   read

G.I. Joe movie cards let's you scratch your head

Dropping on the world like no one's business, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra will be an abomination. Hopefully a fun, stupid abomination but an abomination nonetheless. Here's something to get your hopes up or down depending how you look at it. They are File cars for the movie. I think it is safe to assume these will be included in any action figure made for this movie. Here they are...

The Joes


Is it just me or does the Cobra Vipers remind you of Army of Two? Also, if you don't know, James McCullen = Destro. And do you think it is safe to say that The Doctor is really Doctor Mindbender who has not been revealed or announced?

Anyways, the movie looks like it could be a little fun. I will for sure see it but will have my palm ready to embrace my face. I am interested in how they go abouts making action figures based on the film. Will they be like the current Joe's out there or will they be larger in the same vein as other movie action figures. Now THAT is a pressing question!!!

No reason to live: Turok sequel is cancelled

Talk about the worst news EVAR! Yesterday I get one of the best (if not THE best) downloadable game and now this. There was UNANNOUNCED Turok 2 planned to come out and now the stupid recession stops it from happening. How dare they! Are they using their head at all?

Turok makers, Propaganda, is owned by Disney and that is the first place they go to make cuts. They were working on two projects and canned Turok 2, talk about stupid moves. Should we revel in the fact that the other game is still being worked on? No, cause it is probably a load of butt suck.

I don't think I can support Disney anymore. No more Lizzy Maguire dvd purchases, no more Even Stevens marathons, and definitely no more Hannah Montana in any way shape or form. I won't even look at her "sexy" pre-pr0n photos she posts on MySpace anymore. That is how much I am upset. I don't believe the CEO of that company knows how to run a company. They are missing out on a gold mine here.

My Video Game Dreams come true

Past the console/flame wars and suckage, there are amazing games out there. So many, it's pretty hard to find a game that doesn't cover some sort of "fantasy" a gamer could have. Of course minus the whole "sex fantasies." But when looking at all these games, all my video game dreams are true or about to come true.


The most obvious of them all is of course zombie killing. Killing zombies through the medium of video games has never been so easy. No longer do I have to pretend something is a zombie cause there are games dedicated to this amazing spectacule. What is better is I can do this with friends or even be them.

Yes, the zombie killing dream is none other than Left 4 Dead. Some others that lend themselves to this dream are the upcoming Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers and Burn Zombie Burn! Make you twice at another sleepwalker, huh?


Ever since I was a little boy, Aliens was an awesome movie. Actually it still is a sweet movie. And in the golden days I would have to stick to playing with the stellar action figures to act out my dreams. That is until Alien 3 came out. And soon enough there will be a new title to quench this hunger.

Aliens: Colonial Marines will be the snooze button to return to an excellent dreamful slumber. In dreams, no one can hear you scream...well that's not true since Mason talks in his sleep.


Besides video games, there is a world of music out there. Grand and full of uniqueness and copies/clones/redundant bands. Doesn't mean you can't do your own thing. Thankfully there is a wide range of "tools" or games to accomplish such a feat.

Electroplankton, Jam Session, E4, and KORG-DS 10 are four titles among a slightly larger lot that let's you accomplish the joys of actually making soothing sounds for sleep or party time.

No, Rock Band and Guitar Hero are not the among these titles. Those are "cool simulators" that let you play not so great songs. On the contrary, these titles let you actually make music. Understand the difference?


Another childhood dream is to set off on a crazy adventure. Exploring the jungle and adventuring into ancient places of the past. Who wouldn't want to be like Indiana Jones? Unfortunately most of his games are bollocks. But hope is not lost when you have Nathan Drake!

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is a cure for the explorers nightmares questing! Bring your own whip and hat.

The Force

Look at all these childhood memories coming back. Besides exploring the unknowns of the world, there is the unknowns of space. Being all held together by something greater than us is alluring. Plus who doesn't want to cut things up with a lightsaber or shoot lightning from your hands?!

Perhaps not the greatest of games, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed let you use the lightsaber and force powers like never before. The use of the force seemed greater than previous efforts like Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. Can you feel it?

Starship Troopers

There is one dream that has yet to come true. It has in the past but with mostly fail results. But the hope that this dream will come true will be fulfilled tonight. It may not be exact but killing large swarms of bugs will nonetheless be obtained. Rico's Roughnecks wouldn't have it any other way!

Although not an "official" Starship Troopers game in any way, Savage Moon consists of many things that will make that dream a realtiy. Military settlements on a distant planet, large defense weapons, and hordes of bugs coming in to kill! I can't wait!!!Brings a new meaing to "don't let the bed bugs bite!"

There are other game dreams that have been realized like Team Fortress 2 for epic team action or Gears of War for a little chainsaw fun. Wartime games with Killzone and dino-killing games Turok. High speed, futuristic racing on F-Zero GX and crashing cars in Burnout 2. And who can forget jerking a Wiimote/beam katana in No More Heroes? All these and more leaves me with the feeling of how great it is to be a gamer now.

Japan's newest fad (NVGR)


Always on the CUTTING edge of culture, Japan has a new commericial about the new fad that will sweep the world. Word is it that it is already present here in the state with little teens. I hear that SEGA is looking making it a video game based off it. It would fit on the Wii as well. If they can make this idea into a Wii game, I don't see why this would be any different!

Also, <3 Toyko Gore Police.   read

Video Game Star, back in the day!


Back in the day, this video game star had some small rolls before he tested/made some sweet games. Check out some of his earlier careers (in one of the best movies ever made!). I guess we all know who to blame here, right?

Why Dead Rising Wii is lacking in the zombie department...

Wow, it all makes sense now. How could I have been so blind! I guess if you don't buy this game you hate zombies. You don't hate zombies do you?
